    Hmm. I found the exact same photo that listed it as a Char 1bis with the 105 gun

    The Panzerjaeger sounded a bit strange to me too but that's what my generally reliable book said.

    Here's the next

    It looks sort of like the Carro Armato L6/40, adopted by the Germans as the Pz Kpfw L6/40 733(i) but not exactly...

    Very close miss but it's not the L6/40.

    It looks almost exactly like a Fiat L.6/40 Light Tank.

    Not an Ansaldo L6/40, different gun, different drive train, different name and different dates, this one is from before the war.

    Close but no cigar, the M11/39 had more or less the same drive train as the later M13/40 (8 roadweels sprung in groups of 4) this vehicle resembles the L6 but has one more little weel as the rear one is designed to be off the ground.

    This is a true L6

    And this is a variant of the vehicle I'm asking about armed like the M11/39.

    The family resemblance is evident but .....

    Not an L3 either. We've just run out of mainstream Italian tank models (unless someone comes up with the P40 but I said pre-war :D), you need to dig a little deeper.

    It's Italian and from the same design line that eventually resulted in the L6/40 but earlier.
    Only a handful were built and it never saw combat.
    Now if you can't find it with this info .....

    At last we have a winner !!!

    Actually the name I know is Carro assalto modello 36 but it's referred to as Ansaldo 5 tonn in some English sources so it's good enough.

    Over to you, find a nice one.
